Police have identified man involved in Hill County standoff

Posted:
HILL COUNTY -

An eight hour standoff between a burglary suspect and Hill County Sheriff's Deputies ended with no injuries reported on Tuesday. The standoff occurred at a house on Hill Private Road 221, off FM 2114, which is southwest of Aquilla and near the Hill and Bosque County line.

Hill County Sheriffs have identified the suspect as 33-year-old Aaron Glowski. He has been charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer and felon in possession of a firearm, but more charges may be filed, authorities say.

Just after 11 a.m. Tuesday morning, neighbors noticed a man entering the house, which had belonged to a recently deceased woman.

A daughter of the deceased woman currently lives in the home, and the Hill County Sheriff's Office says the man is in a relationship with the daughter.

The neighbors called the sheriff's office after they saw the man carrying items out of the house.

A constable was the first to respond and was later joined by a deputy. The suspect was in the house and stayed inside as more authorities arrived on the scene.

As the standoff continued, the man, later identified as Glowski, threatened to "burn the house down around him." The Aquilla Fire Department was then called to stand by. Authorities say he had several lighters in his pocket.

Authorities say the suspect fired eight shots during the standoff, including five shots out of a window at deputies. Deputies fired canisters of tear gas inside the home until the man was forced outside. The standoff lasted for about eight hours.

The McLennan County SWAT team, DPS and the Texas Rangers assisted. Glowski was taken to the Hill County Jail and has other outstanding warrants out of Hood County.
